moved for leave to introduce Bill C-310, An Act to amend the Canada Evidence Act (interpretation of numerical dates).
Mr. Speaker, my private member's bill is one which I have introduced even before the year 2000 because I saw the impending doom of stating dates in numeric form and the ambiguity that this causes now in these years.
My wife went away and I cooked myself some macaroni and cheese. The date was wrong. The date was not given in the right format and I ate some rotten food. That is a true story.
The bill will correct that very disastrous situation.
